The research examined the history of the Practical and Applied Arts, the reasons for students taking the courses, the state of Practical and Applied Arts in Saskatchewan,the future of Practical and Applied Arts, the need for more research, and the effect the courses had on graduates’ career and education choices (over the ten-year period immediately following high school graduation). Data were collected by an online questionnaire and analyzed using descriptive statistics. The data were analyzed by the researcher. A seven member interpretation panel purposely chosen to represent four different profiles was used to interpret and provide meaning to the data.
